CarAdvice on YourMoney, 14 November 2018: What's on this week's show?
On this week's episode of CarAdvice, Trent Nikolic and Paul Maric go over BMW's all-new X5 SUV, Volkswagen's success with brand loyalty, and a sales slump in China.
One of BMW's most popular models, the big X5 SUV, has been renewed for a new generation. We've got pricing and details right here, and a review here too.
Say what you will about Volkswagen's transgressions in recent times, the brand knows how to keep fans on side – as this brand loyalty survey appears to prove.
Aston Martin DBX SUV revealed with official camo set
The Aston Martin DBX will look exactly as one would expect, and blessedly very little like the jacked-up coupe concept unveiled in 2015.
As these official 'spy photos' show, Aston Martin's long anticipated SUV will boast a silhouette that could almost be mistaken for an F-Pace or Levante – with, perhaps, the exception of that peculiar duckbill at the rear.
2019 Mazda 3: Design and interior spied in testing
Revealing new spy photos of the imminent 2019 Mazda 3 have surfaced ahead of its LA motor show debut, offering the best look yet at the hatch style's final design.
As expected, and as recent teasers have hinted, the new Mazda 3 small car will take much of its inspiration from the muscular Kai concept unveiled at last year's Tokyo motor show.
Mitsubishi expected to lead Alliance's pickup development
It looks like Mitsubishi Motors (MMC) will take a lead role in developing the pickup/ute platform used across the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance on the next-generation Triton (L200), Navara and Alaskan.
We already know this ute trio will share a common architecture in (potentially) different states of tune, wearing different designs and with different cabins, but we now know MMC expects to be the Alliance member chosen to run the project.
Jeep's upcoming ute based on the Wrangler off-roader looks set to be called the 'Gladiator', after an enthusiast's forum noticed the name listed on Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' (FCA) media site.
Posted on JeepScramblerForum, a user noticed a page for the '2020 Jeep Gladiator' and posted a screenshot to the forum. However, the page is no longer live.
Originally, it was believed the new pickup would be named 'Scrambler', a name used on the long-wheelbase CJ-8 utility in the 1980s.
